Before you can add new social media sources to be fetched, please connect your own social media profiles at Your Profile.

New: Filter function

Many of you requested the feature to be able to fetch posts from individual accounts/pages based on specific keywords or hashtags. With Version 2.1.2, it is now possible to filter posts already when fetching them. Select a regular Twitter/Instagram/RSS account and filter it according to specific keywords (Twitter, Instagram, RSS Feeds) or Hashtags (Twitter, Instagram).

Example: Adding the Twitter account @swissteam (Swiss Olympic Team) and further filter it with the Hashtags #rio2016 and #gold. Under Approve Posts you will now only see Twitter posts from Swiss Olympic featuring the Hashtags #rio2016 and #gold within their posts.

Facebook

You can add public Facebook pages (no private accounts) by pasting the name of the Facebook account in the field ¬ęSource/Feed). The individual Facebook account name can be found on the home page of your Facebook account or by looking at the Facebook URL on your Facebook page (e.g. https://www.facebook.com/Storyshaker/).

In case the account you wish to add has no account name but is a combination between name and number, you have to use only the ID (e.g. https://www.facebook.com/Giulia-Steingruber-317155958329304).

Always put the @ in front of the Facebook name/id when adding the source/feed.

Twitter

You can fetch individual Twitter accounts, hashtags or even keywords by adding them at Source/Feed. The account name can be found by viewing at the Twitter account below the icon or by looking at the Twitter URL once you access a particular account. Always add an account with the prefix @, respectively with the symbol # for Hashtags.

Instagram

Storyshaker lets you fetch posts from public Instagram pages or hashtags. Always add a page with the prefix @, respectively with the Hashtag symbol #.

RSS Feeds

Our latest addition is the possibility to fetch RSS feeds. Select in the drop-down menu RSS Feeds as source and add a RSS Feed URL under Source/Feed. Most online media platforms offer RSS feeds (e.g. http://www.reuters.com/tools/rss)

Please note that it can take some minutes after adding new sources until first results arrive under Approve Posts.
